First-Year and Transfer Communities 


Welcome to the University of Oregon!

Our Experience Communities provide first-year and transfer-year students with a year-long course that guide them through resources, activities, and discussions designed to help them make connections and achieve success in their first year. 

The platform is similar to Canvas, making it easy to navigate, and content is updated each term.
